I Am What ??

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) just compared Republicans who oppose government-run socialist healthcare to those who condoned slavery. Where’s the outrage? Sit back, wait, and don’t be surprised if it never comes.

Think Before Getting Bigger Breasts

Here is another chapter of “Uncle Sam

As mentioned last Friday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid unveiled his destructive 2,074 page healthcare bill that will only make the situation worse regarding healthcare in America. Sen. Reid is proposing in his junk of a healthcare bill a 5% tax on elective cosmetic surgery. Nailing those who want breast implants, liposuction, Botox, etc. with this tax will provide $5 billion towards covering the over $900 billion healthcare will cost us. Where did you think these crazy Democrats were going to pull out the money to pay for this? Obama’s stash? This is just the beginning of all the taxes we will be hit with in the coming months and years. This particular tax, if approved, will commence in January 1, 2010. Sit back and watch the show. The popcorn for now is free until Obama and his cronies take over the movie industry.

Below is the text that appears within the bill Sen. Harry Reid has proposed:

Sen. Harry Reid Wants Your Money To Pay For Abortions

Now it’s the Senate’s turn to reveal a healthcare bill that will tell you to “look one way while their other hand is taking your wallet.” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) healthcare bill made its debut yesterday at a whopping 2,074 pages. As expected, it is full of and more . As was the case with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) bill, there will be a lot of outrageous demands made in the “bill”, but there a couple of things that stands out right away. What are they? On page 120, line 13, the plan would require that at least one insurance plan offered in the Exchange (where insurances will be offered to the public to be purchased) covers abortions.

Let’s see how you like this one. On page 122, line 11, section 1303 under the title “Actuarial Value of Optional Service Coverage”, states that the government run socialist healthcare will charge every enrollee in the plan a monthly abortion premium paid directly to the U.S. Treasury account. What? Exactly what you read !! The Obama socialist healthcare plan will force you, whether you believe in abortions or not, to fund abortion services. Incredible !! Section 1303 (a)(2)(C) mentions that the Health Benefits Commissioner must charge at a minimum $1 per enrollee per month.

It is disgusting that a government run healthcare plan in the U.S. will force those who purchase a plan to pay for the murder of defenseless babies. Incredible !!

There is a pro-life amendment called Stupak/Pitt passed by the House by a vote of 240-194 on November 7, 2009. Surprisingly, the vote was bi-partisan. Out of the 240 that voted in favor of the bill, 64 were Democrats. The amendment combines current law by prohibiting federal funding of elective abortions under any government-run plan or plans available under the Exchange. The bill that Harry Reid has put forth rejects the bipartisan Stupak/Pitts amendment and enforces the American people to pay for abortions.

Healthcare reform should be an opportunity to save lives, not end them.

Detroit Thinks Obama Is At The End Of The Rainbow

The city of Detroit announced last month that they had received over $15 million in stimulus money to be handed out to those homeless or becoming homeless that need help paying bills. Thousands lined up to receive an application they would need to fill out in order to receive help from the city.

Below is a recording from WJR 760 AM Detroit. Listen to the people of Detroit interviewed by the radio station and what they believe the stimulus money is.

I can’t begin to explain the ignorance of these people. Folks, these are the same people that voted for our president. These are the same people who will vote for him in 4 years because “Obama money” helped them pay their bills. These are the same people will benefit from Obamacare (socialized medicine) and see it as the best invention since slice bread. Incredible !!

Maine: The Public Option

Folks, it is still not sure what will be the outcome of healthcare in the U.S., but if you need a visual example of what are future will be if healthcare reform is passed and a public option is part of it, just check out the video below. It comes to us via Fox News and a special they aired Thursday titled “Universal Nightmare 2.0 Special: The Maine Lesson.” Maine, along with Massachusetts, are the only two states in the U.S. to currently offer universal healthcare. This is our future if passed. Are you ready for this?

Caution: Senior Citizens

In September, I posted about Max Baucus’s proposed healthcare reform bill and how it coerced America into getting healthcare. Don’t believe President Obama when he says that his new proposed healthcare “reform” won’t ration healthcare because it will !! Obama thinks that we are a bunch of ignorant idiots who don’t have the capacity to comprehend the crap he is trying to pull by us. Guess what “Mr. Lack of Hope and Change”, we are on to you and your cronies and we are stick of it. Embedded within Obamacare’s legal mumbo jumbo jargon it s tiny stipulation regarding Medicare and senior citizens.>

On page 81 the bill states its concern regarding Medicare physician payments. Within those concerns, they offer a “solution”:

“Beginning in 2015, payment would be reduced by five percent if an aggregation of the physician’s resource use is at or above the 90th percentile of national utilization. After five years, the Secretary would have the authority to convert the 90th percentile threshold for payment reductions to a standard measure of utilization, such as deviations from the national mean.”

English translation: Any physician who authorizes treatments for their patients and falls in the top 10% of physicians who have spent the most will be penalized 5% of their total Medicare reimbursements for that year. That sounds to me like an incentive for physicians to ration care. Doesn’t it? Physicians will order less tests and cheaper exams. It basically tells doctors to think twice before ordering that $1,000 exam for Mary who is 85 years old and has chronic heart disease. That $1,000 exam might be the one to put you into the top 10% of physicians who spend too much money on their patients.

If you analyze this further, no matter how much you cutback, there will always be a top 10% of “big spenders”. Doctors will be under pressure all year since they will not know where the cut-off will be and their judgment will be affected also. Seniors are the ones who will suffer and the care they receive from their physician will be heavily affected. Next time you hear the president say, “Healthcare will not be rationed for senior citizens”, do a Joe Wilson and scream at the TV, “YOU LIE !!”

Indoctrination in CNN Studio

When will this stop? The kids in the video below are singing about Obamacare in the CNN studio. I am going to go out on a limb and say that this “Obama Love” beginning to look like a cult following. Obama supporters are drooling over every single word that comes out of his mouth. Are these kids being told both sides of the story? Gauging by the video and its lyrics, the answer is NO.
